Welcome to Mrs. Gutkowski's Fab Fourth Grade

Welcome Back!

I hope this email finds you all excited for the new school year, because I know I am!  It is such a crazy and difficult time for many families. I understand that all of my families are at different places.  Some have working-away from home parents, technology availability difficulties, unique learning abilities, widespread independent learning skills, etc.  The list of differences that I hold dear to my heart is why I became a teacher, but it also makes it hard for me to let go and teach from an empty classroom.  With that being said, a “Distance Learning Schedule” page is added to my website, and a link for specific assignments by week has been added to my Google Classroom. I will email this assignment schedule to you all weekly as well.

I will be available via Remind or email (you will get directions on 8/17).

Let's all enjoy family, stay healthy, and find the silver lining that will show through these times.  I am hopeful California continues to show improvement and that we can at least return to class on a hybrid schedule, sooner than later.
